About Us
Many of us grew up assuming that Christian faith and American freedom fit together hand in
glove.  But lately, it's seemed more and more like the two are in conflict. Are they? Come hear
how a better understanding of authority, democratic freedom, and church teaching can help chart a
way forward in troubled times.

The Rev. Canon Jordan Hylden is an associate editor for the Living Church Foundation and
canon theologian for the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. He is writing his doctoral dissertation in
theology and ethics at Duke University with Stanley Hauerwas, focusing on democracy and
authority in the work of the Catholic philosopher Yves Simon. His M.Div. is also from Duke
(2010, summa cum laude), and he has an A.B. in government from Harvard (2006).

Canon Hylden is a 2014 Episcopal Church Foundation Fellow, a contributor to
The Living
, First Things, Christianity Today, and The Christian Century.  He has recently taught
courses in theology and ethics at Lutheran Southern Theological Seminary (Columbia, SC) and
Saint Louis University (St. Louis, MO).

Jordan is married to the Rev. Emily Hylden, and they make their home in Dallas.
